Wisconsin DNR: Bonus Antlerless Deer Harvest Authorizations Available Now

Posted on 8-17-2022

MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wishes to remind hunters that bonus antlerless harvest authorizations opened up for purchase  on Monday, August 15th, and are currently available online through the Go Wild license portal and at license sales locations.

Deer population levels vary throughout the state, and antlerless harvest opportunities vary by management zone. This allows for greater harvest opportunities where deer are abundant and a more conservative harvest where deer are fewer in number.

Bonus antlerless harvest authorizations, formerly known as tags, are available for purchase in all deer management units (DMUs) for the 2022 season.

Bonus authorizations are sold at a rate of one per person per day until sold out or until the 2022 deer hunting season ends. Bonus authorizations are $12 each for Wisconsin residents, $20 each for non-residents and $5 each for youth ages 11 and under.
